Restore America's Estuaries, along with our alliance members' American Littoral Society​, and Save The Bay - Narragansett Bay​are the recipient of a $100K grant from The New York Community Trust​, to promote the ecological health and climate resilience of Jamaica Bay.

This project will use a proven technique developed by Save the Bay (Rhode Island) to assess the condition of Jamaica Bay's marshlands, which provide vital habitat for a wide range of wildlife.  This information will allow us to most effectively help these vital areas adapt to the impending impacts of climate change, particularly sea-level rise. The best practices and lessons learned from this project will be shared with partner organizations, multiplying the impact by informing restoration work across Jamaica Bay and throughout the northeastern U.S.
